Cook for a few minutes, until the onion is translucent, then add the crushed tomatoes, sweet potato, lentils, cumin, turmeric, curry powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Step 4

Stir, then bring to a gentle simmer, adding some water if needed to achieve a thick texture.

Simmer stirring occasionally for approximately 30 minutes, or until the potato is softened but still holding shape.
